Paddling is a breeze, and the scenery spectacular, in this region’s lakes, rivers, ponds
The Lakes Region has 273 lakes and ponds, so you just know the paddling is going to be super. Paddle-boarding, kayaking and canoeing are wonderfully peaceful ways to enjoy the delights of this vast region, whether you want to revel in the bright colors of autumn seek out summer wildlife on the shore and in the air or start your spring by honing your paddling skills. Many inns, hotels and resorts have private access to lakefronts and beaches to make launching a breeze (some have their own picturesque ponds), and several companies offer kayaking and canoeing tours, paddle-board trips on the Saco River and lessons in everything from whitewater kayaking to wake-surfing. Rental options are plentiful along the waterfronts.
